Dark straw pour with medium off-white head. Aroma of malt, some corn flakes, honey. Tastes malty, with hopcit and honey at the finish. It does have a sort of Anchor Steamy, "toasty" flavor, but I fail to be able to articulate it accurately. Worth a try.

Brewtopia, This was amber in body, tah in head. Aroma was toast like, and the taste was toasted caramel, and grahm cracker. Smooth finish, full mouth feel. Very nice.

Draught: Frosted glass, oh well…off points for the floating ice chunks, but the beer itself has a nice dark toasted almond colour – no head. Toasted malt aroma with sour and piney undertones. Slightly smoky, and wheat filled flavours with a clean, moist finish. Not expecting a lot…this one was nice.

This is an Ok Vienna. Toasted malt, earthy, and hop flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

My first toasted lager, so I don’t have much to compare it to. I enjoyed it but would probably reach for something else in my fridge if I wanted something with a similar taste. Not bad though, not bad.

a good lager. definately better on tap, as is most of Blue Points beer. Bottled for some reason is a little different

Small white head thats short lived, minimal lace. Clear, amber colored lager. Lightly malty nose. Medium/light body. Dry malt flavors, toasty? lightly hopped, a hint of caramel. An easy drinking lager. Finish is dry.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber appearance wih a small head and little lacing. Aroma was toasted malt that was a little spicy. Smooth, well rounded malty taste, somewhat nutty with a clean, dry short lived finish. Would like to try their Octoberfest next to this. Think I’ll go get another from the cellar.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a golden-yellow hue with a tinge of amber to it. A small white head with nice lacing soon follows . Aromas of caramel, citrus, and a little honey. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the flavor is a little sour and lingers as it goes down. Flavors of lemon, a little ginger, a little spruce and a slight toastiness; not as much as you would expect from a brew with such a name. Overall, fairly bland after a while. I would get bored drinking many of these as the flavor lacks much depth.

Definitely underrated, this completely took me by surprise. Without a doubt, the buttery flavor left in my mouth after each sip is well worth the purchase.
